Our Mission and Vision
- Our Mission
- “Our mission is to fulfill the Great Commission that was given o us by our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Luke 24:46).”
- Our Vision
- “Lehman Avenue Church of Christ seeks to be an authentic, growing family trying to empower our whole community to please God and go to heaven.”
“In the summer of 2020, our elders sat down to work on a strategic plan for the future of the Lehman Avenue congregation. After looking at the unique strengths and opportunities available to us here, they eventually drafted a vision statement to help us identify who we want to be. This vision helped us identify areas of emphasis or priorities for our congregation. Seven areas, which we call “vision groups,” were identified. These groups are comprised mostly of deacons along with other men who lead in areas of ministry (such as finance and youth program).
The goal of these vision groups is not only to lead in carrying out the vision and mission of the church here but also to involve as many members as possible in using their talents (Rom. 12; Eph. 4:11-16) to help reach our goals and objectives to the glory of God.
Already, this strategic plan has brought success and realized goals. The mailing of House to House, Heart to Heart, the “Light of the World” TV program on NBC, the revamped college ministry, the payoff of our Cumberland Trace property, the first Friday night singings, the teacher’s banquet, the greater use of the visitor’s center and greeting program, and much, much more have resulted directly or indirectly from this process.”
